Cough Colds In Babies 11 Months 14 Days?
Hello, My baby is 2 weeks old even 1 year. The gypsum roof of our house collapsed (estimated to be 1/2) when it was holiday. We went home on the 7th. But there was still a lot of debris dust and moist air because it was tightly closed. The next day, my little one coughed occasionally only during sleep initially with a little vomit when he coughed (I also felt a sore throat because of the dust) and at night the liquid began to appear at nose (runny nose). Today is only day 2. The condition is more frequent coughing, fluid in the nose, sleep uncomfortable because of nasal congestion. What do you do to do it at home initially? Because I do not know drugs that are sold in the market for 1 year old. Are there recommendations from HealthReplies.com? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Inhalation of dust, gypsum flakes, and other airway irritants can indeed trigger inflammation in the respiratory tract. Typically, this inflammation will cause increased mucus production, narrowed airway, resulting in coughing and colds. Piles of mucus in the throat in infants not infrequently will also stimulate the gag reflex.
Aside from the above, coughs, colds, and vomiting that your baby is experiencing might also be triggered by a viral infection, bacterial infection, allergies, foreign body aspiration, and many other conditions.
If it's a new complaint lasts 1-3 days, you should not panic first, let alone give your baby any medication without first seeing a doctor. Safer, first overcome the condition of your baby with the following efforts:
Give your baby more milk and warm water Give your baby a soft, easy to swallow, warm, not too greasy MPASI Don't give your baby food and drinks that are cold, contain artificial sweeteners, and take away Keep the baby away from dust, cold, pollution, smoke , animal hair, pollen, and other substances that might trigger allergies or irritation in the airways Keep the environment around the baby always clean Do not use the air conditioner or fan around the baby. Dry the baby in the morning sun, before 9 o'clock in the morning, so mucus in the airways melts and is easier to remove. If within 3 days your baby's condition does not improve, or appear fever, shortness, vomiting more frequently, breathing sounds, and other complaints are more severe, immediately check your baby to the doctor or pediatrician yes..
I hope this helps.
